If you are a woman who has given birth or who is in your 40’s, 50’s, 60’s or 70’s, chances are you’ve had urinary incontinence at some point, or maybe you still do. Giving birth, aging and menopause all change our bodies. These changes can make this problem worse. For some of us with kids, we have found that jumping on the trampoline with them just isn’t a possibility anymore. Others of us notice it at the gym. Perhaps it is a cardio class or even running on a treadmill. One minute we’re fine and the next we’re racing to the bathroom. Even though this condition is common, that doesn’t mean it’s any fun.
Most of us who deal with urinary incontinence have accepted it as part of life. We even plan our lives around it. We try to stay close to a bathroom most of the time. However, we may not have to just accept this condition much longer. Technological advancements are giving us other options including the Emsella Incontinence Chair. The Emsella is a new FDA-cleared, non-invasive, non-surgical treatment for incontinence.
At Trilogy, we are offering Salt Lake City women the chance to try this amazing treatment. If you are one of those women who dread going to doctor and talking about this problem or who dread invasive exams and procedures, the Emsella Incontinence Chair may be worth a try. Why not try the least invasive treatment available first? It’s so easy. Most women who try it love it. Women who’ve tried it are glad they found a treatment that didn’t involve surgery and a treatment that they could remain fully clothed during the initial consultation and treatment.
How the Emsella Incontinence Chair works
The chair works by sending vibrations caused by High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic technology (HI-FEM) to stimulate your pelvic floor. This is the same technology used in MRIs. Your muscles contract and release as you sit on the chair. These contractions are similar to Kegel exercises. The advantage to using the chair is during a 28-minute treatment you can do 11,200 Kegels. Think how quickly you can get stronger. Another advantage to using the chair is that you can make the vibrations stronger or lighter according to your comfort level.
The best part of the Emsella Incontinence Chair treatment is that you can do it fully clothed! You literally come to our office with some music or reading material. Then you sit down on the chair for 28 minutes. You experience no pain but do feel your muscles contracting. When you hit the 28 minute mark, you are good to go. Your muscles might feel like they have worked out, but that’s it! It couldn’t be simpler. This treatment has no downtime and no side effects.
For most people, we recommend two treatments per week for 3 weeks (6 treatments total). Some women notice improvement after a single session. You will continue to see improvements over several weeks. If urinary incontinence is affecting your quality of life, why not give the Emsella Incontinence Chair a try? It’s a new year and time for a new you!
